Phew! It is taking a bit getting used to. After our first full week, we are seeing how we can streamline this crazy schedule. It's been a while since I have worked on such a large and involved show. It is going to be pretty awesome, though. We have alot of neat technical effects planned and the singers sound amazing already. The Magic Flute performs at BYU in October, so buy tickets is you'd like to come!
Calvin before bed one night. He kept putting all these plastic balls in his shirt.
Calvin is doing so well amid all the back-to-school/work craziness. Most days, Calvin and I get to hang out all morning, and then he gets to play over at a with a friend in the afternoon. He is learning a new word every day! It's crazy how big he's getting!
